So many of us are relying on quick fixes these days—and there’s no shame in that. We’re all overextended and overbooked, not to mention overtired. Maybe you’ve been putting a few things off, like doing your hair. You just might not feel like you have the time and energy to color your hair right now. We can all relate to that! But what if we told you could set aside just ten minutes to color your roots...and that your grays will stay covered, through multiple stylings and showers, for up to two weeks?
Cover now, color later. That’s the unofficial motto of Root Reboot®, our first-of-its-kind, single use, demi-permanent hair color that lets you quickly and easily color your roots, and delivers total gray coverage. (I mean—boom. Grays, gone.) Here’s how it works. Root Reboot blends seamlessly with your existing permanent color (without altering it, so it really is the ultimate fast fix). The long-wearing liquid formula expertly camouflages fast-growing gray roots with beautiful, shiny, natural-looking, demi-permanent color. Even better, our unique sponge applicator lets you precisely apply the formula, so you’re able to target just your grays...all without leaving behind a drippy mess. Neat, in more ways than one.
Did we mention how easy it is? All you have to do is mix, shake, then apply...
1.Mix: Start by putting on your gloves. Now carefully pour the liquid color into the activator tube. Be sure to cap the tube, which brings us to...

2.Shake: Shake the activator tube up and down for about 30 seconds. To avoid splattering, shake all product to the bottom of the tube. Remove the silver part of the tube from the cap to reveal—ta-da!—your trusty sponge applicator.

3.Apply: We recommend pointing the tube away from your face and squeezing just a tiny amount of product out to saturate the sponge. Now you’re ready to rock. Gently press the sponge applicator along your part to begin applying color. Apply your color to the visible gray roots along your part. Continue applying to the hairline along your face wherever grays are starting to show. To fully saturate your roots, use up all the product in the tube. Then set your timer and let process for just 10 minutes (or 15 minutes if you have stubborn grays).

Now all you need are the finishing touches. Rinse your hair until the water runs clear, shampoo, condition...and you’re done! Congratulations, you get to put off coloring your hair for another two weeks. You, Root Reboot, you’re both winners.
Root Reboot is available in seven universal shades—from light brown to blackest black, in cool and warm tones—that blend right in with your current color. Choose your shade and put away your to-do list for another day, knowing your grays will stay covered for two weeks. Procrastination can be a beautiful thing.
